Ormiston House - Regency

And another weekend has drawn to a close. Such a shame. I really do love the weekend. But I have to say that I was very unproductive. I woke up Friday morning and my back just about froze in place. I struggled into work but schlepped on home at 4 to lay down, and have since done not much else. Thankfully I picked up the new BSG blu-ray box set last week so I had lots of time for viewing.

But I did make my way out to Ormiston House with Kerry and the Kaleidoscope Dancers. We were dressed in Regency again, me in my well worn purple ensemble and Kerry in her brand new muslin dress. She looked so very pretty twirling around on the lawn. I took a truck load of photos but have taken the opportunity to just load up the best ones. One thing I will sat about Ormiston House is that it is absolutely stunning. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos inside the house, but I admired it all the same. The wallpapers were especially spectacular with one room in green flocking. I am desperate to venture on back out there some time for a historical picnic in the gardens. I am thinking bustle (just because there are not enough opportunities to wear a bustle gown). But for the photos...


  1. I love all of the costume pictures on your blog - so inspiring! All of the costume events that you've attended look so neat! I need to find a local group like that. :)

  2. I hope you do find a group. I love being in costume and it's great to have friends who love it to. Not to mention the number of people I have met by being involved.
